Here is what we know about the injured stars across the fantasy football landscape as of Saturday night.



Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers

Big Ben wasn't actually listed on the Steelers' final injury report of the week, so his knee must be feeling better. Still, it felt right to put him here and to tell you to not worry about his health. He's a QB1 versus the Cowboys.

Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Despite taking a big hit and sustaining a knee injury late in the Bucs' Week 9 loss, Winston is all set to go versus the Bears. He is a decent streaming option at home. He has thrown eight touchdowns in his last three games.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, New York Jets

Jets fans may not like it, but Fitzpatrick will start once again despite spraining the MCL in his left knee last week. Look elsewhere for your fantasy QB.



Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Winston is a decent streaming option only because Evans will be active and should play his usual number of snaps Sunday. The must-start wideout cleared the league's concussion protocol Thursday.

Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

Bryant is listed as questionable due to his knee injury, but he practiced in full all week long. He is in line for a nice rebound game versus the Steelers.

Jeremy Maclin, Kansas City Chiefs

Maclin has been ruled out after aggravating his groin injury early in the Chiefs' Week 9 game versus the Jaguars. Given what he's done so far this year, I think it's OK to drop Maclin if you have a greater need elsewhere on your roster. My hope is that his absence will lead to more opportunities for speed merchant Tyreek Hill. I think he is an interesting gamble as a WR3 against the Panthers.

DeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins

Jackson is another disappointing 2016 wideout who will also not suit up this weekend. He is officially listed as doubtful but hasn't practiced all week because of a shoulder injury. Slot receiver Jamison Crowder is a stellar replacement for all D-Jax owners out there.

Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins

After returning to practice Friday, Landry is listed as questionable for Miami's game versus the Chargers. He should play through his shoulder injury, but considering that he hasn't scored or gained more than 91 yards since Week 3, he is a WR3 in PPR only. However, there is hope that he will see an increase targets after head coach Adam Gase and offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said during the week that Landry needs to get the ball more often.

Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins

Like Landry, Stills missed some practice time this week but was on the field Friday. He is being bothered by a calf injury. He should play against San Diego and be a Hail Mary WR4.

Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers

Cobb didn't play until the second half of his Week 9 game because of the hamstring injury that has nagged him for weeks. The good news is that he's off the Packers' injury report and should see a full complement of snaps this weekend. He is an OK WR2 versus the Titans.

John Brown, Arizona Cardinals

Brown's ailing hamstring healed up over the bye week and he should be all systems go against the 49ers. Given that J.J. Nelson has apparently surpassed him and Michael Floyd on the depth chart, Brown is more of a WR3 on Sunday. The Cardinals should be able to just control the game and run all day with David Johnson.

Travis Benjamin, San Diego Chargers

Benjamin's knee injury has him doubtful for Week 10. It'll be smart for the Chargers to rest him before their Week 11 bye. That means Tyrell Williams -- who will play through his own knee injury -- is a strong WR2 versus the Dolphins. Last week, in a game in which Benjamin barely played, Williams caught six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Miami has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to wideouts.

Allen Hurns, Jacksonville Jaguars

Hurns has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol, but he is very close. He'll have one more chance to do so Sunday morning. If he suits up, he'll be an uninspiring WR3 against the Texans.

Will Fuller, Houston Texans

In that same game, this rookie speedster is listed as questionable with a leg injury despite practicing all week long and coming off of the bye week. Fuller is a touchdown-or-bust WR3 with Brock Osweiler not looking like anything close to an NFL-caliber QB.

Sammie Coates, Pittsburgh Steelers

Coates has been practicing in full but is still on the injury report due to his once-fractured finger. He's a big-play threat; you just don't know if he will actually catch those big plays. With Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey having been declared out, Eli Rogers is in play if you are desperate for a WR3.

Victor Cruz, New York Giants

Cruz is listed as questionable, but considering that he didn't practice on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, you shouldn't be counting on him for Monday night. He's nursing a sprained ankle. His likely absence should mean a few more looks for Sterling Shepard against the Bengals.

Chris Hogan, New England Patriots

A back injury has Hogan "truly questionable" for Week 10, according to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe. I wouldn't want him in my lineups versus Seattle. His absence could lead to more targets for Julian Edelman, who is well overdue for a big game.



Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams

This first-round fantasy bust missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before returning on Friday. The Rams say he is dealing with a thigh injury, but its exact nature is unclear. Although he is still expected to play, Gurley is mid-range RB2, at best, against the Jets.

Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It sounds like Martin will play in his first game since Week 2 on Sunday. He will definitely be limited as he makes his way back from a hamstring injury, but he should be owned in all leagues and could be a strong RB2 as we approach the fantasy playoffs. For this week against the Bears, Peyton Barber is the heavy favorite to lead the Bucs in carries. Other than Martin being limited, Jacquizz Rodgers is out. Barber is a worthwhile flex play.

Carlos Hyde, San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers were reportedly going to decide Hyde's Week 10 status on Saturday, but nothing has been made public yet. He practiced in limited fashion -- and without contact -- all week and is officially listed as questionable. He is not a safe fantasy start, even if active, in a game versus the Cardinals that could get away from San Fran quickly. If Hyde is inactive, DuJuan Harris would be a decent RB2 in PPR leagues. He caught five passes for 83 yards and a score last week.

Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs

Ware, who didn't play in Week 9 due to a concussion, passed all of the necessary tests this week and will be a low-end RB1 against the Panthers' strong run defense.

Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks

C.J. Prosise might become a workhorse back for the Seahawks on Sunday night. That's because, besides Thomas Rawls already being ruled out, Michael is questionable with a hamstring injury. With a bad matchup and coming off a five-carry, 1-yard game, C-Mike is a weak RB2 if he plays. Rawls might return to action in Week 11, so your window to sell Michael is closing fast.

Dion Lewis, New England Patriots

Lewis has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list and should be active in that Seahawks-Patriots primetime affair. He will likely share passing-down snaps with James White and isn't worth starting in fantasy right now. But Lewis, who was a fringe RB1 in fantasy before sustaining an ACL tear last season, is a must-own player.

Tevin Coleman, Atlanta Falcons

Coleman will miss his third consecutive game due to a hamstring injury. Hopefully, the Falcons' upcoming bye week is just what he needs to get healthy. With him out, Devonta Freeman remains a strong RB1.

James Starks, Green Bay Packers

The Packers' running game has received some badly need good news this week as Starks is expected to play for the first time since sustaining a knee injury in Week 5. As with Lewis and Martin, don't expect to see him a whole lot in Week 10. But he could become Green Bay's clear lead back in a hurry and is worth picking up in all formats.

Matt Jones, Washington Redskins

Jones is back from his knee injury, but he has lost his starting job to Rob Kelley. There have even been reports that Jones could be a healthy scratch in Week 10. He is well off the fantasy radar for now. Kelley is a low-end RB2 against the Vikings.

Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans

Although Titans head coach Mike Mularkey suggested earlier in the week that Henry could miss multiple games because of his calf injury, the rookie practiced in full Friday and should be active against the Packers. Henry won't be worth starting in fantasy lineups, however; DeMarco Murray has been taken off the team's injury report after dealing with a toe ailment for a couple of weeks.

DeAngelo Williams, Pittsburgh Steelers

Williams underwent a knee scope on Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined for as much as a month. He can be dropped in all formats. Fitzgerald Toussaint will serve as Le'Veon Bell's handcuff for the time being.



Ladarius Green, Pittsburgh Steelers

It looks like Green will make his Steelers debut after being activated from the PUP list this week. He said he is still not at 100 percent and he will likely play limited snaps against the Cowboys. However, Green has the physical skills to be a matchup nightmare and is worth stashing in deeper leagues if you're not happy with your current tight end situation. He might give your roster a boost down the stretch.

Jacob Tamme, Atlanta Falcons

Tamme will miss his second straight game due to a shoulder injury. Thus, Austin Hooper, who put up a 3-46-1 line in Week 9, is worth a shot against the Eagles.


Hunter Henry, San Diego Chargers

Henry is back after sitting out last week's game with a knee injury. He doesn't really have any fantasy value right now, but his presence does cut into Antonio Gates' upside just a little bit.


Other injured players who are expected to play this week: Marcus Mariota, QB, Tennessee Titans; Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals; Brandon Marshall, WR, New York Jets; Julian Edelman, WR, New England Patriots; Tyrell Williams, WR, San Diego Chargers; Eddie Royal, WR, Chicago Bears; DeMarco Murray, RB, Tennessee Titans; Matt Forte, RB, New York Jets; Jimmy Graham, TE, Seattle Seahawks; Antonio Gates, TE, San Diego Chargers; Martellus Bennett, TE, New England Patriots.
